NCAA Sweet 16: Arizona men's basketball loses to Clemson

Arizona got another year of what could have been.

In the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 on Thursday night in Los Angeles, the second-seeded Wildcats fell behind No. 6 Clemson in the first half, recovered, but then gave the Tigers the advantage again.

UA (27-9) dropped its third straight Sweet 16 appearance after going 5 of 28 from the 3-point line,

with top scorer Caleb Love missing all nine triples in a 5-of-18 outing. Only three Wildcats scored in double figures and shot 37.3 percent, slipping to 0-6 when fewer than four scored 10 points.

Oumar Ballo scored 15 points and 15 rebounds, Love had 13, and Jaden Bradley led the UA with 18 points off the bench, 

including 16 in the second half. Starting players Kylan Boswell, Keshad Johnson, and Pelle Larsson shot 6/23.

Arizona scored five of six points and forced three Clemson turnovers in a 12-4 surge to tie it at 43 after trailing 39-31 at halftime. A Love layup gave the Wildcats their first lead, 46-45, waking up the Tigers.

Jack Clark Jr.'s 3 gave them the lead again, which they soon increased to 53-48. After Bradley made back-to-back trips to the line with 9:55 left, the UA tied it at 56, but Clemson raced off five straight, including a banked-in 3 by Ian Schieffelin.
